I have 3 tables .  the tables are connected with Foreign keys

I want to delete some records but as they are interconnected by foreign keys i have to delete all of the dependencies.

I want a query like below but this does not work

delete from tableA , tableB , tableC where tableA.w = tableB.m and tableB.r =tableC.s  AND tableA.y=5

i think this way i can remove the records from the above 3 tables which are connected by foreign keys

but that query is not correct .......can you  make my query correct ?
